Scratch Week took the place as the equivalent of Scratch Day in 2021. The reason is unknown as to why the Scratch Team did not do Scratch Month for 2021. Scratch Week started on Monday, May 17, 2021 (with the Ridiculous Inventions studio), and ended on Friday, May 21, 2021 (with the Make Someone's Day studio) to celebrate Scratch's 14th birthday. There was no in-person Scratch Week events due to COVID-19, like the previous year.
Each day the Scratch Team would make studios with themes; users were invited to make projects for the studios. These studios were then featured in the "Featured Studios" row on the homepage. On Monday, May 24, 2021, ScratchCat released this project which featured some of the projects created by Scratchers during Scratch Week.
Day 1 (May 17, 2021)
Ridiculous Inventions; Do you have a problem you’d like to create a ridiculous invention to solve? A fun or complicated device that doesn’t do anything useful? A silly way to solve a common issue you face? If so, you’ve found the right place! Share your fun, overly complicated, ridiculous inventions with us through your next Scratch project!
Day 2 (May 18, 2021)
Cooking With Scratch; Create a project that celebrates foods you enjoy or wish existed. From a regional specialty or family tradition, to imaginary magical fruits, to healthy eating, to junk food, or anything in between — you decide what to make.
Day 3 (May 19, 2021)
Magical Arcade; Put on your wizard hats and grab your wands, in this studio we’ll be creating games of mythical, magical, and fantastical proportions. From games with dragons, to magical chess, to enchanted forests, and adventure quests, the choice of what to make is up to you!
Day 4 (May 20, 2021)
Invent an Instrument; Make a musical instrument from anything: a starfish? a soccer ball? a snack? You might be familiar with instruments like pianos, drums, guitars, and flutes. But anything that makes a sound can be an instrument. What will you make?
Day 5 (May 21, 2021)
Make Someone's Day; Make a project to cheer someone up or remind them that they are loved! Let’s get together and make someone’s day! Whether you want to cheer someone up or remind them that they are loved, a random act of kindness can make them feel special. Make something add to this studio that will bring smiles and joy to those around you.
